  • D. L. Evans Bank was founded on September 15, 1904, in Albion, Idaho by David Lloyd (D.L.) Evans and a pioneering group of southern Idaho businessmen. The bank was capitalized for $25,000. Communities developed in the following years, and with more people, the demand for bank services grew. In 1910, the bank moved to a two-story stone building in Albion, where it stayed for 60 years. The recession of the 1930s closed most banks in Idaho, but D. L. Evans Bank survived, continuing to provide customers with essential financial services. The Burley branch opened in 1979, with John V. Evans Jr., a great-grandson of the founder, as manager. On December 31, 1986, he became CEO and announced that his father, then-governor John V. Evans Sr., would join the bank as president after his term as governor was completed. John Sr., fondly known as “the Gov,” held public office for more than 35 years. He ended his second term as governor on January 5, 1987, having held the office for 10 years. His background in banking, farming, ranching, and government helped him lead D. L. Evans Bank into the 21st century. John V. Evans, Sr., served as President of D.L. Evans Bank until his passing in July, 2014. Don S. Evans Sr. became Chairman of the Board in 1976 and continues to serve the bank in that capacity. Today, three generations of the Evans family participate in the bank’s daily operations and on the board of directors with President and Chief Executive Officer John V. Evans Jr. leading the bank. D. L. Evans, the founder, lived by the principles of integrity, charity, friendliness, compassion, and hard work. D. L. Evans Bank directors and officers emulate these principles and encourage employees to do the same. While times have changed, the bank has never lost sight of the founder’s vision, that banking is really just about one thing: helping people. That is the strength of a family-owned community bank. D. L. Evans Bank has expanded tremendously over the last several years. The bank has grown to more than $1.2 billion in assets with 27 full-service branches throughout Idaho. For more than 110 years, D. L. Evans Bank has taken pride in helping Idaho’s families grow and prosper. Its roots are firmly planted in Idaho, and as a community bank with headquarters in Burley and branch offices in Albion, Ammon, Boise, Burley, Caldwell, Eagle, Fruitland, Hailey, Idaho Falls, Jerome, Ketchum, Meridian, Nampa, Pocatello, Rupert, and Twin Falls, it has truly become the #1 community bank in Idaho.
